Kaine: Trump Making "Wild," "Scorched-Earth" Claims About "Rigged Election" Are "Scare Tactics"


On Sunday's “This Week with George Stephanopoulos”, co-anchor Martha Raddatz went one-on-one with Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine, who classified Trump’s rigged election claims as “scare tactics.”

SEN. TIM KAINE: I have always said this was going to be close and I really believe that. I’m campaigning in Florida, a very close state. I come from Virginia; all of our races are close. And I’ve just assumed that from the very beginning. And we’ve just got to keep making our case over the next three-plus weeks.

We like where we are in the polls in the states that matter, but we’re not taking anything for granted, especially in the last couple of days, as Donald Trump has kind of started to go wilder and wilder. I think after -- by all accounts -- losing the first two debates, he started to make wild claims, kind of scorched earth claims about the election being rigged, et cetera.

So we have to keep putting out a message and we need to call on everybody to speak out about the fact that we run elections and we run them well here. He shouldn’t be engaging in those scare tactics. And so we’re needing to push that message, and we ask the GOP leaders also to stand up for the integrity of the American electoral process.
